The Catholic Church is stepping up to protect the rights of parents to raise their children as they see fit. The Vatican’s delegation to the United Nations called on nations to respect the rights of parents in bringing up their children the way they see fit, including using the option of homeschooling. It is nice to see the Vatican explicitly call out homeschooling.
It was interesting to see what is mentioned in this article. Two groups that our family belongs to – the Homeschool Legal Defense Association, and Seton Home Study School – praised the Vatican for this effort.
Also mentioned is that parents must not be forced to teach their children things contrary to the beliefs of the family. This includes homosexuality, feminism, abortion, and evolution.
